In which a bad week for Brick Owens becomes much, much worse.
Milwaukee Sentinel, Page 2, August 21, 1912:
In the double header here on Tuesday between Pittsburg and Brooklyn Umpires Brennan and Owens were both injured in the first part of the first game and two players were called upon to act the rest of the first game and all of the second. As far as known it is the first time both umpires have been hurt in a major league game.
Umpire Brennan…slipped near second base, injuring his knee cap. Umpire Owens, who was behind the bat, was hit by a foul tip off Jack Miller‘s bat…his breast bone being broken.
Umpire Owens was unconscious when taken to the hospital.
Milwaukee Journal, August 21, 1912:
Just about three days ago [Brick Owens] took in a shooting gallery and proceeded to show his mate, Brennan, how to break clay pipes. Before Brick got through he was under the care of a doctor and was having a lot of powder dug out of his eyes.
